Dear Mrs. Fargey

Your grief will be great when you know that your son passed quietly away this morning. He was so good & brave & did not murmer once He was anxious that you would receive his Bible & just a few things he had with him. He sent his love to all and peacefully gave himself up.

He was one of the finest lads I have ever seen & an absolute hero. I am afraid your sorrow will be great as he spoke continually of you & hoped it would not worry you too much. It may be a little comfort to you to know that everything that was possible was done for your boy & now that all the soldiers graves are well kept I shall put flowers on your boys cross with your love.

With sincere sympathy for you in your great loss

Believe me
Yours sincerely
Angela M Sadlier
Staff Nurse in charge
Ward 10
